It’s an all-time question and fear when it comes to teeth whitening. You’ve tried different solutions, from in-office professional whitening treatments to over-the-counter products and DIY hacks. But, it’s always either ineffective or causing severe discomfort and pain. It leaves you questioning yourself: “Is the result worth bearing the pain?”

But the thing is, you don’t have to compromise. It shouldn’t be a tough choice between having a dull smile or a painful but bright one. And that’s what City Dental Group’s has been brewing to introduce alternative innovative methods catering to teeth whitening for sensitive teeth.

What Causes Tooth Sensitivity?

Before we dive into the best way to whiten teeth for sensitive teeth, we need to understand what causes teeth sensitivity and try to avoid it in the first place. Some people are genetically more prone to teeth sensitivity due to thin enamel, the hard, white-looking layer covering the inner dentin and tooth pulp. These layers are softer and more sensitive to the outer environments.

However, various factors and lifestyle activities can cause teeth sensitivity for two main reasons,

  • Gum recession due to vigorous brushing, smoking, or a variety of gum diseases or inflammation
  • And loss or thinning of enamel, such as consuming a lot of acidic drinks or food, using a hard toothbrush, applying too much force while brushing, or tooth decay.

Whether genetic or acquired, these factors can make teeth whitening for sensitive teeth challenging.


While the exact reason for what causes sensitive teeth after whitening is still unknown, it’s believed that the penetration of the whitening agents is responsible for temporarily irritating the inner soft layers of the tooth. High concentrations or prolonged contact time with the tooth surface can cause dehydration of the tooth tissues.

Moreover, using light sources generates heat to activate the whitening gel, and if left uncontrolled, it will lead to pulp inflammation, causing post-whitening teeth sensitivity.

Is Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth Possible?

The good news is: Yes, teeth whitening without sensitivity is achievable! While sensitivity after whitening is usually mild and tolerable for the majority, it can be more severe for those prone to sensitivity and generally feel sensitive to cold and hot drinks.

City Dental Group’s approach focuses on providing the best teeth whitening products for sensitive teeth. Achieving the ultimate at-home teeth whitening results while maintaining tooth health by eliminating factors that cause sensitivity.

This way, your teeth get noticeably whiter without using too much whitening agent or a long contact time. Plus, it won’t hurt your tooth pulp with excessive heat. Together, they make the best teeth whitening for sensitive teeth.

Also, how you put on the whitening gel is crucial for your oral and gum health. With a precise silicon brush and a formula that stays in place, you can easily apply it without getting the gel all over your gums.

To sum up, City Dental Group understands the common struggles with traditional teeth whitening methods and has developed innovative solutions for teeth whitening for sensitive teeth. By using a specially formulated gel with a safe concentration of hydrogen peroxide and combining it with City Dental’s cutting-edge technology, you can now experience effective teeth whitening without the discomfort associated with high concentrations of whitening agents or prolonged treatments.
